When 15 year old Cassandra Miller is taken away from her abusive father, she is placed in the care of a family who has many secrets to hide, among them the fact that they are Merpeople with a long history of luring humans into the water to kill them.

Everything appears to be perfect but she sees telltale signs that things may be too good to be true.

Her new family, the Morgans, are obsessed with water but forbid her to go near it. Water is everywhere she looks, surrounding her. Lake Superior is her new backyard and aquariums make up the inside walls of her new house. Oddly enough they seem to be having fish everyday for lunch.

The Sons of Thor, a group of five young men who, have sworn to protect humankind with their lightning bolts. They have an understanding with the Morgans, that they will leave them alone as long as they leave humans alone.

Now that the Morgans have taken a human into their home to raise as their daughter, the agreement is broken.

Eric, one of the Sons of Thor, has fallen in love with Cassandra. He wants to take her away from them but they have the law on their side and he can't admit who they are without admitting who he is.

The two groups will have to set their differences aside and work together to protect Cassandra from her father, who is at large and wants his daughter back.

Cassandra just wants a chance to be a normal child. She doesn't want to jeopardize the love of her family for a mere guy.

Daughter of the Oceans is told in first person from both Cassandra's and Eric's prospective.

Thanks, I have done this, Amazon.com is very efficient. They answer almost within 24 hours and are very personal. However, Amazon.de ist absolutely different. They do not answer quickly (if at all) and they have less possibillities for suggestions.

Maritime Action-Adventures:

~The Golden Catch~
Usually read James Patterson...Fast moving, interesting, bit of romance & just enough make-believe. Struggled to put it down...i would highly recommend it."

~Fatal Return~
"I simply love all of Weston's books and this one did not fail to deliver. He never uses "fluff" to fill in pages. Excellent read."

Hamburg 1947: A Place for the Heart to Kip 0,89

A True Story written by a 90 year old RAF Veteran

Harry Leslie Smith's second memoir, Hamburg 1947: A Place for the Heart to Kip is a love story in my mind and it's just brilliant. -Judging covers

One of the most worthwhile features of Hamburg 1947: a place for the heart to kip is its portrayal of life as a member of an occupying force in a conquered city... his descriptions of the devastated city have an unforgettable lyric beauty.-Indie E-Book Review

"I did not expect to have compassion for the German population after WWII, but I was shocked at the conditions the non-war-criminal average citizens of Germany lived with during the Occupation of the Allies in Germany"

The memoir is well written, with a compelling story that carried me along steadily. I like to find at least one reviewing pinprick, although it's difficult this time. The book ends with a cliff-hanger, making me wonder what came next. In all, I cannot recommend this memoir highly enough.-The Kindle Book Review

Twenty-two years old and ready for peace, Harry Leslie Smith has survived the Great Depression and endured the Second World War. Now, in 1945 in Hamburg, Germany, he must come to terms with a nation physically and emotionally devastated. In this memoir, he narrates a story of people searching to belong and survive in a world that was almost destroyed. Hamburg 1947 recounts Smith's youthful RAF days as part of the occupational forces in post-war Germany. A wireless operator during the war, he doesn't want to return to Britain and join a queue of unemployed former servicemen; he reenlists for long term duty in occupied Germany. From his billet in Hamburg, a city razed to the ground by remorseless aerial bombardment, he witnesses a people and era on the brink of annihilation. This narrative presents a street-level view of a city reduced to rubble populated with refugees, black marketers, and cynical soldiers. At times grim and other times amusing, Smith writes a memoir relaying the social history about this time and place, providing a unique look at post-WWII Germany. Hamburg 1947 is both a love story for a city and a passionate retailing of a love affair with a young German woman.

J. Alexander meint:
A groan, uneven, ragged breathing. They both heard it at the same time. Toms heart thudding loudly against his ribs, a caged animal trying to escape, he edged over to where the sound was coming from. Right on the water line was a body.

Stranded, without water, food or shelter, 17 year old Tom has only the company of his best friend Martin and a rich, spoilt girl, Julia, whos keeping something from them. Thrown into a complex web that is the foundation of a past of which Tom has remained ignorant his whole life, hes forced to acknowledge who and what he really is. Secrets which have been closely guarded until now are about to change Toms life forever as he is faced with a reality he never knew existed. Everything hes been led to believe so far has been a lie

Stanley Muddingfield, ex FBI, re-assigned to a new secret division of US intelligence, finds his holidays disrupted as the past which should long have been buried, is violently unearthed. Plunged back into a world hed long left behind, Stan is forced into a race against time and an old enemy who is smarter and deadlier than is comforting to imagine. A fight to prevent global dystopia has begun and the only one who can find the answers, is Stan.

Merc meint:
Hi, I'm an Australian writer living in Vienna. My name is Sylvia Petter. I've written three collections of short stories and have had stories included in various charity anthologies. The publisher of my first collection, The Past Present (2000/20001 - we were a little ahead of the times with ebook and POD) went bust, so I Kindled it last year. There are still a few copies with secondhand sellers, but I'm planning to bring out the paperback. The publisher of my second collection, Back Burning, is based in Australia. In Australia, there is tax on books, so the prices are a bit high. I have just released my third collection, Mercury Blobs, with another publisher in Australia. It is now available in Kindle and in paperback and Ive managed to get the prices much lower. A couple of my stories have appeared in German, but although I'm fluent, I still get tied up in my "der-die-das". I'm working on the revisions of two novels, but those revisions need time. Novels aren't easy, but neither are short stories. Each new story is a new adventure. I'd be pleased to discuss my work and how I go about it.

My Amazon author page is at amazon.com/author/sylviapetter and there are links to my blog and to Twitter. I also have a page on Facebook at https://de-de.facebook.com/SylviaAPetter where I post writing-related things about competitions and events and anything to do with the writing process. You are very welcome to come and have a look.

Joyce DeBacco meint:
Hello, German cousins. And, yes, despite my name I do have some German in my ancestry. Before I mention my books, I'd like to introduce myself. I recently dismissed my small publisher and went indie. Because of this, I'm able to offer my work at a substantially lower price. I write women's fiction/romance, but it's not the silly kind of romance. My stories revolve around families and the problems they face raising children and staying in love. If this kind of story appeals to you, please check out my opening chapters. Thank you for reading this. And now to my books.

So Wonderful as Want
Rubies and Other Gems
Where Dreams are Born
Serendipity House
Midnight and Holding (short fiction collection)
Tomorrow Blossoms

I hope you'll take a look. Thanks.

Joyce
